"YO, Pass the AUX Cord, You'd Better Not Read" TRASH Set

Post by FortOsageScholarBowl » Sun Apr 23, 2017 11:56 pm

The Fort Osage High School Scholar Bowl team is pleased to announce the release of...

"YO, Pass the AUX cord, You'd Better Not Read" TRASH event!

This set was originally used as a 10/10 for our TRASH trivia tournament on Feb. 9th. It was only 4 packets (an EP, if you will...), but has now been turned into a 6 packet 20/20 set. This mixtape is ready to drop for any team who would like to have a Trash set for practice, fundraising, a good laugh, etc.... Prices are negotiable, and its sequel will be due in October, so I will leave it open until then...

Here is the question breakdown:

3/3 Vintage music (pre-1970's, 1970's-1980's)
3/3 Modern music (1990's-today)
2/2 Vintage movies (pre-1960's, 1960's-80's)
2/2 Modern movies (1990's-today)
2/2 Vintage sports (pre-1960's, 1960's-80's)
2/2 Modern sports (1990's-today)
2/2 Vintage TV (pre-1960's, 1960's-80's)
2/2 Modern TV (1990's-today)
3/2 Other (memes, video games, etc.)

None of these are exact, because we did choose topics we liked...

Please let me know if you are interested, jmalecki@fortosage.net, describe how you plan to use it, and I'll send you a price quote...and then we can continue negotiations if need be...

Thanks, Josh Malecki, Fort Osage High School Scholar Bowl

2 questions.

1. How difficult is it?

2. How hard are the bars?

1. It was written for a mixture of Scholar Bowl players, parents, and others, so it's pretty PG-13, but with an appropriate dose of memes, horror films, etc. But with some ice cold adult beverages, it might be even better...

2. I think I trapped it pretty well, but tracks 5 and 6 might be the most difficult, since they weren't used at all...

The distro's preponderance of old crap appeals to me. Anyone going to SSNCT want to play this?

In the spirit of Donald Trump, I suggest someone else figuring out how to achieve my aims.

EDIT: In seriousness, I'd be happy to collect some money or organize teams, but I don't want to get into a room/buzzer corral mode.

Josh has set a price at $5 a person (could be adjusted depending on format). I'll have the set and can collect money if we can find rooms, buzzers, and figure out a format.

Seems like there's pretty good interest for this. With only 6 packets, we're a little limited in format, but it would be really easy to draw up a schedule for a 6-team round robin, and we can do either quads or teams of 5 depending on interest.

In any case, I'm planning on playing this with Rob, Tejas, and Erik Nelson.

Lots of people, at least the one's I'm in contact with, have some sort of plan for Saturday night. So, doing this on Friday night after scrimmages, etc. are over would probably be best. Someone should set up a team spreadsheet!

We should probably arrange some logistics for this! I assume since Mike and I are both playing we'd be fine using our room as one of the game rooms. Do we want to meet on the lobby level (outside of where team checkin was) at like 945-10?

Hello friends,
I am acting as a proxy for Travis, who is driving:
"Hey, can you go on HSQB and see if they've decided on a time and day for the trash for this weekend? If not, can you make a post asking about it, because it would be nice to have an a feel for timing,".

Can I please have something to relay back?

Also, I am pretty sure he intended for me to make my own post, not just quote him, but this was less work.

It would possibly be simpler if we could just some nearby gamerooms that already have buzzers in them (provided we don't damage them).

Yeah, if we only need three rooms, let's just use some gamerooms, maybe in the airport wing, which would be right next to other and have buzzers set up (JUST BE CAREFUL NOT TO DAMAGE THE EQUIPMENT).

Hopefully we can get three staffers; if not, we will have to use a bye moderator thing. I have the packets and will distribute them. I will also collect the $5 per person.

Seems reasonable, other than the fact that there are no bye teams due to the format.

We have six teams but are in need of an additional moderator; if you are able to moderate please put your name down on the spreadsheet and meet in the lobby at 9:30 once scrimmages are done. Otherwise we'll have to resort to impressment.

So I ended up reading for this...and here's a quick summary of the games played in my room (since I forgot to get y'all my scoresheets):

Round 1: Team 3 (Auroni et al) --- 390 .... Team 5 (HS folks) --- 110
Round 2: Team 2 (Cheyne et al) -- 610 .... Team 3 (Auroni et al) --- 85
Round 3: Team 1 (Rob et al) ------ 585 .... Team 4 (Shaw et al) --- 220
Round 4: Team 4 (Shaw et al) --- Win ..... Team 5 (HS folks) --- Forfeit
Round 5: Team 6 (Sorice et al) -- Win .... Team 5 (HS folks) --- Forfeit

I ended up reading the 2nd half of a final, with the final two teams being Team 6 vs. Team 2.

Final score: Team 2 (185) --- Team 6 (170).

This tournament was fun to play, if sometimes hilariously easy for the field.

It's pretty easy, but there's also some presumably very hard answerines for high schoolers. Actually looking at the full text of the questions, a recurring quirk is that a much easier clue is placed before harder ones, so some (some) of the very easiness stems from this as well.

If it doesn't conflict with ACRONYM or Math Monstrosity, I'd be interested.

Would be willing to play (or moderate) at HSNCT if it happens (and doesn't conflict with ACRONYM)
